Professional Poker Player Ali Imsirovic Admits to Multi-Accounting, Refutes Other Cheating Accusations in Recent YouTube Video

Posted on 26.06.2023 Posted Under: News

Professional poker player Ali Imsirovic has confessed to multi-accounting, but refutes certain cheating accusations. In a YouTube video that lasts 28 minutes, released on Sunday, Imsirovic, who has been accused of cheating in poker, sought to “clarify the situation.” He acknowledged some of the charges leveled against him, but also refuted others.

Just 15 seconds into the video, the 2021 GPI Player of the Year confessed that he made a serious error in 2020 when he started multi-accounting MTT’s.

Imsirovic and Jake Schindler were accused in 2022 by several high-stakes colleagues of multi-accounting online and colluding in live events. They were subsequently banned from participating in PokerGO Tour events a few months later.

However, Imsirovic, who has now confessed to cheating, refuted a claim made by Alex Foxen on Twitter the previous year. Foxen had suggested that there was some dubious activity between Imsirovic and Paul Phua during a Triton Poker event. Imsirovic stated in the video that his multi-accounting lasted only “four to five months.” The poker professional, who has won over $18.6 million in live tournaments according to Hendon Mob, has not been seen in the high roller scene since the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP). Schindler, on the other hand, has participated in several events this summer.

Both Schindler and Imsirovic had previously avoided making public statements about the cheating allegations. Neither of them had refuted any of the charges against them, and Schindler still hasn’t.

Imsirovic refuted many of the allegations against him, including the claim that he has been recently orchestrating an online poker cheating scheme, which he described as “completely f*****g ridiculous.”

The high-stakes player also stated that he no longer has any online poker horses and that the multi-accounting and ghosting only occurred for a brief period during COVID.

Before ending the video, the Bosnian poker professional criticized those who don’t “have their houses in order.” He implied that some of those accusing him of cheating are or have allegedly done the same. Imsirovic concluded the video by stating that the cheating allegations have been “hard on my family.”

“I feel like I’ve paid all of my dues and want to move past this,” Imsirovic stated.
